Impressed by its shiny silvery looks, I thought I'd switch from the rotary shavers I normally use. Using it for the first time, I was anticipating outstanding performance whilst all the components were sharp and new and at their best. Alas, totally underwhelming. Moreover, the foil is somewhat fragile, and, when one of the foils split without my noticing, it gashed my cheek with more efficiency than a normal razor. I'm now wondering whether to buy the overpriced replacement blades and foils, and extend its life for a few more years, or cut my losses and return to rotary shavers. Admittedly, the motor component of this shaver is really good, and the rechargeable battery lasts for about two weeks, but the blade/foil combination is not sufficiently durable, and the third small cutter of limited usefulness. I'm not sure if this model is still available, or anything similar from Remington, but if you're thinking about buying one, research it thoroughly.
